High Idle question

Just wondering if the high idle tune is worth getting? Does it make much difference over the factory high idle mode? I'm in MO so can have some cold mornings around 0, but typical winter temps are in the mid 20s.

Depends.
Have you done a EBPV delete? IF so, then getting a chip with a High Idle tune wouldn't be a bad idea.
Depending on your truck - The Air Intake Heater (AIH) and EPBV should be all you need (if they're working correctly)

The EBPV and AIH are intact and working properly.
